Bid on Ebay for an ApologetiX Concert
Tue., Jun. 13. 2006 1:19am EDT

You can bid on eBay to have ApologetiX come to your church on July 29, 2006!

The auction closes on June 20 at 1:48 a.m. EST. place your bid online now.

You've wanted ApologetiX to come to your church but you didn't think you could ever make it happen? Or we never come close enough?

We have been booking the summer and we decided to award one prime Saturday date in the middle of summer to the church that is the most excited about having us. We hope they'll promote the dickens out of the event and get hundreds of folks to come out.

Although we can only play about 150 shows, we have already received 477 invitations for 2006. We're going to go everywhere we can, but we won't be able to honor every invitation. So, we've decided to let a good old-fashioned auction help us pick the most enthusiastic group.

This is open to absolutely anyone, even radio stations, churches, or individuals who want to finance a free or even ticketed concert. Pray about it, talk to the powers that be, and get your bid in! See you in July!

HOW EBAY WORKS
With eBay, you can put in the maximum you're willing to bid on something, and if you win, you'll only be responsible for what it takes to beat the next guy. For example, the current bid might be at $4, and you can say "I'll go as high as $20" If one other person bids $8, you would still win, and your bid would be $9.

So, feel free to bid as high as you're willing to go and if it only takes $100 to win it, that's all you're on the hook for :) As soon as you win an auction on eBay, the money is automatically transferred.

THE REST OF THE WEEKEND
We're also going to book the Friday before and the Sunday after, a couple hours away at least.

WHAT ELSE WILL I HAVE TO PROVIDE:
As promoter, you'll need to take care of lodging at your expense (outside of the eBay bid) with five rooms at a local Best Western.

If you're within 400 miles of Pittsburgh, PA, we'll most likely bring full production, and take care of sound, lights and everything. We'll only need access to a certain kind of 220V receptacle that you can get at Home Depot for $10 and have the church handy man install.

If you're more than 400 miles from Pittsburgh, you may have to provide sound to support a five-piece rock band, especially if it's outside, or too far to drive. If we have to fly, we'll need help with ground transportation to and from the airport.

WHAT ABOUT PROMOTION?
You're the promoter, so that's your main responsibility. And it's not usually easy, but many of our shows are promoted by first timers. You'll be fine.

We can help out with some graphics, a radio ad, and a few other things, but it's up to you as to what advertising you want to do. We'll advertise the event heavily to our fan club (as we're doing right now ;) and we'll guide you every step of the way.

WHAT ABOUT AN OPENING BAND?
We can talk about that. Sometimes the immense additional complexity is worth it. ;)

Those are the main things -- we have a "manual" on what to do, and we'll give that to the winner, as we give it to everyone who promotes an ApologetiX concert. The most important thing is to get your bid in, and watch it!

The auction closes on June 19th. Here's the link to bid: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=9530588256&ssPageName=ADME:B:EF:US:1

God bless!
